Iroquois River CR 400W Bridge
Posted June 21, 2017, by john gerbracht (gjr38 [at] qwestoffice [dot] net)

This bridge was on CR 300 W; just west (downstream) of the NYC double track bridge over the Iroquois River, itself just a short distance west of the US 41 bridge over the river. I grew up in this area.
